Holy Cross football coaches have WWE match
Thursday August 27th, 2015

Holy Cross football players got a break from their pre-season practice on Thursday courtesy of some WWE-style battling between two assistant coaches.

Linebackers coach Alex Besner, aka “The Marblehead Magician,” took on tight ends coach Steve Cully, wrestling as “The Great Cullini,” in a match that would rival anything seen at SummerSlam.

Besner starts out in control of the battle with some Ric Flair-style chops across his opponent‘s chest but things take a big turn as Cully shakes off a clothesline and drops a choke slam on his co-worker.

Judging by the huge crowd reaction, Cully and Besner may have what it takes to set up a rematch at next year’s Wrestlemania.
